Kings of Convenience are a music duo formed in Bergen, Norway. The band consists of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe, who met as children at a geography competition. Their albums have been praised by critics across-the-board for their great melodies and perfect harmonies.

After a five-year break, the band released Declaration of Dependence, their third LP, on October 2009. Quiet but determined, the duo manages to put together a perfectly cohesive collection of strangely gorgeous breezy tunes. If you are curious, here’s a personal favourite: the introspective and subdued “Freedom and its Owner”…

And as a bonus, you can find below two older tracks remixed by UK cult electronica act Four Tet and Norwegian duo Röyksopp.
